Fix to Python marshaling leaks for arrays holding GVariants

Add early check for array items holding pointers and simply assign the
pointer to GIArgument.v_pointer prior giving it to the per-item marshaler.
This simplifies marshaling and fixes leaks regarding arrays of GVariants by
removing the unneeded g_variant_ref_sink (variants are always pointers).
Conditionalize the use of g_variant_ref_sink based on transfer mode in the
per-item marshaler. This fixes a reference leak where we are given ownership
of the variant (transfer full) but added a new ref anyway.
